The Packers had a relatively slow 2018-19 season, mainly due to injuries to starting quarterback Aaron Rogers. With Rogers healthy and ready to go, you can expect the team to be much more competitive this season. Many experts have the team coming out of the NFC North with a playoff spot.
A number of Green Bay Packers betting options will be available this season. Some of the most popular betting types include:
Moneylines provide simple bets on the winner of a matchup. Odds can vary greatly based on the teams. Basically, these are a simple win-lose bet.
Point spreads attempt to even out matchups by awarding the underdog a select number of points. Favorites, on the other hand, are deducted the same number of points.
If you bet against the spread, you’re betting on the underdog to lose by less than a select number of points. To cover the spread, you must wager on the favorite to win by more than the select number of points.
Over-under football bets give you the chance to bet on the total number of points in a game. A number will be set by the bookmaker, you can wager on whether you think the points total will be over or under the set number.
Proposition bets give you the chance to bet on various occurrences within a game. Note, these actions don’t necessarily affect the game’s outcome. For example, you can bet on who will score the first touchdown.
In contrast, some prop bets are related to the outcome, at least in part. As an example, bet on whether Aaron Rogers will score two touchdowns in the game.
Outright wagers are made on the winner of the Super Bowl. Even now you can wager on a team to win the Super Bowl on most online bookmakers. The odds to outright bets change greatly over the course of the season.
The team will begin their season on a Friday night game against the Bears before taking on the Vikings in week 2. Check out the full schedule below.

They are the only non-profit, community-owned major league professional sports team based in the United States.
The Super Bowl trophy, named the Vince Lombardi Trophy, is named after the Packers’ coach of the same name.
The team is the third oldest in the league, dating back to 1919. Founded by Earl “Curly” Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun, the franchise traces back its lineage to semi-professional teams in Green Bay back in the 1890’s.

Since the early 2000’s they have dominated the NFC North, winning the division ten times in the past 18 years.
